Show Me How You Eat a Pine Cone...

 
First you find a good pine cone, be careful how you carry it...

 
I use my fingers...

 
So I can get a good bite...
 
 
Occasionally I peel it like a banana...

 
Stop staring!  Yes, I'm a male...

 
Almost done...

 
Can you show me where I can wash my face?

  1. I didn't realize they ate so much of the cone! I thought they just picked the "seeds" out from under the "petals". Thank you for sharing.

  4. Love the pictures! I didn't realize that squirrels ate pine cones either. I knew that I had been finding the "cobs" allover my deck because we have large white pines next to our house. I just thought they were malformed pine cones, or ones that had lost their parts before they fell. I have noticed a big difference in the acorns here this year also. We have huge oaks as well and this year the acorns are very prolific, large and a lot of them are dark brown or black when they fall. Not sure what that means. I love the "Pokeberry Quilt".
